Hi Krista, I'm sorry I didn't see this earlier...it's been a while since I've visited Passions.
When I post a poem, I generally code in my own html and use color codes from the hexidecimal color chart, which can be found in many places around the web. When you are coding your html, you can select the font face, color, size, placement...basically everything that you would be able to code into a webpage, with just a few easy commands. I'll send you a link for a good and very basic html tutorial site. It's the one I used when I began learning html for my website, and I still refer back to it every now and again. Hope it helps!
